Author : Herman, Helen-Serras

In this second installment, we will take a closer look at howlite and magnesite, two minerals that have famous all-natural varieties and infamous dyed simulants. They are like "Phantoms of the Opera" hiding behind mask! Once their mask is peeled off, they may not be hideous like the theater phantom, but just plain unattractive, humdrum and pedestrian.
